Not long ago, I featured a china cabinet makeover from High Style Restyle. Well, that was only one of several projects that Amy and her dad have been making from pieces of the china cabinet he found on the roadside. Today, I’m sharing another one: their new apothecary-style cabinet.

He couldn’t get over someone discarding such a high-quality piece of furniture,” she explains. His excitement inspired her to turn the old cabinet into a special surprise for Dad.
“My dad snatched this old sewing cabinet for me up from the street,” explains Ronja at her blog, Nur Noch. It was just the right size for her sewing supplies, so she decided to pretty it up with a makeover.
